Re: [Condor-users] Eviction due to keyboard busy?

All the logs show unsuspend happening 5 mins after suspend.
To me this means that the suspends were happening due to
keyboard activity and NOT the cpu being busy.

This is a bit of a long shot, but just in case: do you have ledd or anything similar installed? (it's a daemon that uses the keyboard LEDs to give status information, eg flash the scroll lock light if under load). The cycle I experienced was: submit condor job -> machine gets put under load -> ledd notices, flashes the keyboard lights, which gets picked up as keyboard activity -> condor suspends, load drops, ledd stops flashing lights -> machine becomes idle, job starts again -> repeat ad infinitum.
